“A historic step to fight corruption, black money and terrorism,” Modi said on Twitter a day after announcing the decision to axe Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes.

With megastar Rajinikanth joining a host of actors to laud the Prime Minister for the move, Modi took the opportunity to call upon the people to join the fight against corruption and black money.

“Thank you. All of us have to work shoulder to shoulder and create a prosperous, inclusive and corruption-free India,” posted Modi in reply to Rajinikanth’s tweet, “Hats off Narendra Modiji. New India is born, Jai Hind”.

Among the other Bollywood stars to hail the move were Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor and Anushka Sharma.
